This review is from: Fiori di Zucca: Recipes and Memories from My Family's Kitchen Table (Hardcover)
Absolutely beautiful book, which I read cover to cover over a weekend. It inspires you to get into the kitchen and create some beautiful dishes. Valentina Harris recipes seem easy to follow and understand too, which helps regardless of how complex the recipe.

5.0 out of 5 stars My husband loves it!, 20 Sep 2013

This review is from: Fiori di Zucca: Recipes and Memories from My Family's Kitchen Table (Hardcover)
Bought this for my cooking loving husband. Since he retired he's been like having my very own chef and so I like to encourage him by buying good books. This one is different because it is also about the authors family in Italy and I often find him reading and enjoying the book. Result!

5.0 out of 5 stars Reminiscences and family recipes, 22 Aug 2013

(REAL NAME)   
This review is from: Fiori di Zucca: Recipes and Memories from My Family's Kitchen Table (Hardcover)
Valentina Harris' cookbooks are always infused with a wonderfully evocative prose. This is no exception.

In this volume she tells the story of her remarkable family, aristocratic connections, political activism and exile. The recipes reflect the peripatetic life led by members of her family, ranging from turkish bulgar, pomegranate and almond salad, through bouillabaisse and Brown Betty to lavender scones and rose petal jam.

Of course, being a Valentina Harris cookbook, there are also Italian receipes such as the delicious fiori di zucca (lightly battered, ricotta-stuffed courgette flowers) which give the book its title.

If it is an Italian cookbook by Valentina Harris which you are seeking, then Risotto! Risotto! 80 Recipes and All the Know-how You Need to Make Italy's Famous Rice Dish or Valentina's 4 Seasons Cookbook, would be a better choice. However, if you would enjoy a melange of family history and varied recipes, then this would be an excellent choice.
